They’re garage band, Wyld Stallyns, was destined to change the world with their music making the world a more “excellent” place. The duo traveled through time in a phone booth with their futuristic mentor Rufus and encountered such historical figures as Napoleon, Joan of Arc, and Beethoven (pronounced “Beeth – Oven.”)

##Things You’ll Need##
* Black bob wig

* Grey sweatpants
* Black baggy shorts
* Red flannel shirt
* Black faux leather or studded wristband
* two pairs of contrasting colored socks

##Putting together your Ted Theodore Logan costume##
Step 1: Find a black bob wig. It’s similar to Ted’s style, but you’ll need a bit of hair gel to muss it up so it doesn’t look too feminine. Put it on first before doing this to get just the right style.
Step 2: Put on a plain white t-shirt or white t-shirt with a design on the front. Roll up the sleeves a bit and cuff them.
Step 3: Swing on a plain, black vest over your t-shirt.
Step 4: Put on a pair of grey sweatpants and pull up the bottoms so that they gather just around your knees.
Step 5: Pull up a pair of baggy black shorts over your hiked up sweats.
Step 6: Layer a pair of contrasting colored socks (try red and grey) and slouch them to slightly above the ankles.
Step 7: Lace up your grungiest pair of Converse sneaks and put them on.
Step 8: Tie a red flannel shirt around your waist and team up with your buddy Bill to kick out the air guitar jams, Wyld Stallyns style!!
